Adam Vaughan, MP


I would like to thank the constituents of Trinity-Spadina for the confidence they showed in me during the June 30th by-election.

Over the past eight years as a Toronto City Councillor, I have had the tremendous opportunity to work alongside the individuals and organizations that make our community the vibrant, innovative, and diverse constituency that it is. It is now my honour and privilege to serve you in the House of Commons in Ottawa.

Politics is about what we can accomplish when we work together. We have done so much already, but there is much more work ahead of us. Going forward, I will work with my constituents, with my colleagues in Parliament, and with partners across Canada toward the development of a National Housing Strategy before the next election. We must also tackle the massive public infrastructure deficit, and work towards building better cities and urban sustainability.

Through consultation, collaboration, and dialogue on the most pressing issues facing Canada and its cities, we can build consensus around great ideas that are not only ambitious but also workable. That is my party’s approach to public policy and an approach that Canada needs now more than ever.

Through hope and hard work we will make our community, our city and our country the best place to live. Please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff if we can ever be of service to you. Best wishes to you and your family for 2015.

March 24, 2015 | House of Commons

Funding cuts to the CBC are undermining the cultural sector of the economy. Layoffs are now triggering job cuts by small suppliers to the CBC and hurting families, restaurants, hotels and shops in the neighbourhood. As well, recent changes to the Broadcasting Act by the CRTC and the Conservative government’s tampering of Canadian Content regulations are bringing independent film and television work in Toronto to a grinding halt.

This government needs to take action. They must re-invest and reinforce the independence of the CBC and reverse the CTRC decisions that are starting to do serious harm to the digital media, film and television industries.

Video | Adam Tables Petition Opposing Jets at Island Airport

Posted on March 23, 2015

March 23, 2015 | House of Commons

“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to present a petition on behalf of the residents of the riding of Trinity—Spadina and other ridings in the downtown core of Toronto.

The petition deals with the tripartite agreement that regulates jet and airplane use on the Toronto waterfront. The petitioners call upon the Government of Canada to refrain from reopening and amending the tripartite agreement governing the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and the Toronto Port Authority to allow jet aircraft.

This is an issue that runs counter to the $1.5 billion investment to make the Toronto waterfront more beautiful. These petitioners are asking the federal government not to allow jets that would destroy that investment, unbalance the extraordinary beauty of Toronto’s waterfront, and industrialize it unnecessarily.”

–Adam Vaughan, M.P.
